I was completely blown away as I entered the room as it was really clean and bright, and just had a very simple design. The beds and toilet were relatively clean for a budget hotel and I would totally recommend it for backpackers looking for an affordable place to live in.
Next to the hostel there is McDonald's and this gas station? It is also pretty near to Melbourne Central and is definitely within walking distance.
On Friday nights however it'll be slightly noisier due to the bars downstairs. In the day it can also be a little noisy since it is right beside the highway but I'm not really affected by it.
The doors of the hostel, or at least my door, closes with a very loud sound and that bothered me a little.
The kitchen however was not very well equipped as I could not find a cup for my drink.
Overall I think this is a good hostel with a good location and the rooms are very nice and cozy. (:
